Artist Bio

Laurie Lambrecht was born in Bridgehampton, New York and resides there today. She earned her undergraduate degree ay Marymount College, Tarrytown, New York, and has studied in graduate programs at the University of Colorado at Boulder and the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, New York, where she also worked at the George Eastman House. Lambrecht’s projects include documenting Roy Lichtenstein’s studio in the early 1990s, while she was his assistant as he was preparing for a major retrospective at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York. A friend and mentor, Lichtenstein encouraged Lambrecht to take photographs during their preparations and was pleased with the results. After Lichtenstein’s death in 1997, Lambrecht revisited the series and printed the work digitally, allowing the bright bold colors of Lichtenstein’s studio to be seen as she saw them in the 1990s. Inside Roy Lichtenstein’s Studio was exhibited in Houston at the Bank of America Center during the FotoFest 2010 Biennial, as well as in the U.S. and abroad. Her book Roy Lichtenstein in His Studio was published by Monacelli Press in 2011.

China 2009, a series of landscapes, taken during her first trip east, was exhibited at Rick Wester Fine Art, New York in 2012. Her most recent series, Jungle Road (2013), was photographed at the Rauschenberg Artist Residency program on Captiva Island, Florida during her commission to record the artist’s compound. Lambrecht participated in Centro Colombo Americano de Medellín’s 2013 Zoomlab in Colombia, working with high school and university students for two weeks. While in Colombia, she had a solo exhibition at El Museo Universidad de Antioquia. Lambrecht is represented by Rick Wester Fine Art, New York
